If you know Trilliums then you know that this is a classic much sought after trailer. Canadian made. Molded fiberglass construction ensures no leaks .Very easy to tow. Very comfortable for one or two people but will sleep 4. Mostly original and in need of a few upgrades to make it very nice. Many just like it are selling for 5-6,000 so we are firm on our bargain price. Hurry before my wife changes her mind!

I think I can tow a Trillium with our 2K tow limit Camry. Aren't there supposed to be Trillium 13's with bathroom? There is a layout in the old manuals with 'washroom' option, instead of front bunk. Anyone know about this?

Please send any Trillium 13's for sale.

Hi Fran,

I once owned a Trillium 13 with "bathroom," but they are much fewer and farther between than the one with the couch/bunks in front.

The unloaded weight on mine was listed as 1095#, but I believe that didn't count the refrigerator, propane tanks, etc.

I would think you could tow with vehicle that had a 2000# limit, but you'd want to watch what you were carrying (added stuff brings the weight up, plus I think the 1095# might have been a bit optimistic anyway). You'd probably want to consider brakes for the trailer.

Also, check your owner's manual. Some cars require you to subtract the weight of the occupants and cargo from the towing weight (just something to check).

If an automatic, you'd probably want a transmission cooler. I'm not "current" on Camry's, but when I was station wagon shopping a number of years ago, the transmission was one of the possible worry items on that generation of Camry (late 80s, so maybe not applicable).

Overall the 13-foot trailers with bathroom are fairly rare, I'd say.

Good shopping,
